I am looking for information about the family of Benjamin Franklin OLDHAM, who married Lulu Emily GOTT.  Family records place the family in Hutchinson in 1904, when Lulu Emily died of typhoid fever. They had 2 daughters, who were fostered by a Mrs. Flora B. Crooks, who ran a chain of mercantile stores.  Lulu liked to call herself Louise, she was born in Ontario, Canada April 6, 1871.  Any help would be appreciated.

C. C. MOSIMAN is listed in the 1920 census at Wilbur Township, Ford County, Kansas, age 33, born in Kansas, parents born in Switzerland, farmer.  In the household were his wife, Mary, age 25, born Kansas, parents born in Russia, and son W. Howard, age 2 4/12, born in Kansas.  Also in the household is Charlie LANTZ, age 12, single, born in Texas.
I think that Charlies LANTZ is my grandfather, who is known to have been living with a MOSIMAN family about that time.  That Mosiman family is related to a MOSIMAN who married Marie Schirmer, born circa 1905, daughter of Richard  and Elizabeth (Kauffman) Schirmer. I am trying to identify C. C. MOSIMAN.
